A drawing for my art teacher (front and back)

When the blood of your veins returns to the sea and the dust of your bones returns to the ground, maybe then will you remember that this earth does not belong to you, you belong to this earth.

This isn’t the age of spies. This is not even the age of heroes. This is the age of miracles… and there’s nothing more horrifying than miracles. 

You must not dare, for shame, to talk of mercy;
For your own reasons turn into your bosoms,
As dogs upon their masters
— Henry (Henry V, Act II scene ii)

Iraqi civilian death toll passes 5,500 in wake of Isis offensive →


In its report, the UN mission to Iraq says at least 5,576 civilians were killed and another 11,665 wounded from 1 January until the end of June. Another 1.2 million have been driven from their homes by the violence, it adds.

I am literally physically sick from seeing this. And I wish I knew why it was so difficult to find a master list of the names of the Iraqis.

I will never truly understand why coverage of Iraq is so sparse and why numbers of Iraqi human lives taken are always just numbers and not dignified by names…because they are actually humans.

I am aching for my people. And I am fucking angry at ISIS’s disgusting inhumanity. And  frustrated at the amount of apathy that the world has for Iraq.





still upset that the films never acknowledge that Peeta loses a limb in the first arena and goes through the Quarter Quell with a prosthetic leg

or that Katniss has suffered permanent hearing loss in one of her ears and now requires a hearing aid

or, you know, the Avoxes

because, you know, why show disabled people doing things
